Center attacking midfielders (CAM) and center forwards are the two positions most responsible for getting in position to score and setting teammates up for open looks down the middle of the field in FIFA 22. Generally speaking, the CF has a slightly higher rating when it comes to things like positioning, reaction, finishing and long shots. Whereas the CAM typically has better vision and short passing skills.

Since both of these two positions are so important on offense, they need to be prioritized quite heavily when you’re building up a club. So, to help you get started, we’ve created a FIFA 22-tier list ranking all of the best attacking midfielders and forwards in the game.

As previously mentioned, both the CF and the CAM need to have a sound offensive skill set. Meaning that they should both be able to score and pass the ball effectively, as well as get into position to do so. Taking this into account, each of the following players has been ranked based on these attributes.

Without further ado, here is our FIFA 22 best attacking midfielders tier list.
