Fastest Players in FIFA 19
How Important is Pace?
While it’s not as overpowered as it has been in recent instalments, pace is still important in FIFA 19. Whether you’re chasing an attacker or a through ball, having the fastest players in your team can make all the difference. When assessing players, Sprint Speed and Acceleration are given a lot of weight, nobody seems to favour slow players. If you’re still unsure about the definitions of and difference between Sprint Speed and Acceleration, go and check out our attributes guide. With all that in mind, we’ve put together a list of the fastest players in FIFA 19, making it easy for you to find quick players to inject some pace into your side.
Fastest Players in FIFA 19 – Top 50
The left midfielder has 93 sprint speed and 91 acceleration. 77 potential means those values could still increase.
49. Olarenwaju Kayode
93 sprint speed and 91 acceleration. The Shakhtar striker also has 78 potential.
79 rated currently, could grow to 82. An effective right winger with 93 sprint speed and 91 acceleration.
No real growth potential here but matches the previous entrants’ 93 sprint speed and beats them with 92 acceleration.
46. Alvaro Garcia
Matches Gerso with sprint speed at 93 and acceleration at 92. The Spaniard plays at left midfield and only has one potential growth point.
45. Lautaro Acosta
Plays on the left wing, where 93 sprint speed and 92 acceleration comes in handy. 30 years old now though, so those stats might start to decline.
44. Ismaila Sarr
Another player with 93 sprint speed and 92 acceleration. The real point of difference here for the 76 rated Senegalese left midfielder is his 87 potential.
43. Alphonso Davies
Davies can match Sarr’s sprint speed, acceleration and potential – 93, 92 and 87 respectively. The Canadian left midfielder starts out at 72 overall though.
42. Kensuke Nagai
This Japanese striker is unlikely to grow beyond his 67 rating, but 93 for both pace attributes is fantastic.
41. Martin Boyle
Another player whose pace is far beyond his overall rating. The Australian right midfielder also has 93 for both stats.
40. Marcel Heller
At 32 years old, it’s very unlikely that Heller’s sprint speed and acceleration are going to stay at 93 for long. That being said, he could be a cheap stopgap at right midfield.
39. Braydon Manu
Another left midfielder who possesses 93 for both stats. Starts out rated 65 but can reach 74 overall.
38. Fahad Al Muwallad
If you need a right midfielder in the mid 70s, Al Muwallad might be your man. The Saudi is 72 overall but has 77 potential and 93 for both pace attributes.
37. DeAndre Yedlin
Thankfully not everyone on our list of fastest players in FIFA 19 is a winger. The Newcastle right back has pace to burn with both stats ranked at 93. His 81 potential means that he still has room for improvement though.
36. Jordi Alba
Two full backs in a row, also with 93 for both stats. Alba is older than Yedlin so probably won’t grow any more but is already an exceptional defender.
35. Timo Werner
93 sprint speed and acceleration in a striker makes it much more viable to play lofted through balls. The Leipzig man is already an impressive 83 overall but has the potential to reach 87.
34. Seyi Adekoya
Also a striker but his 62 rating and 68 potential would put him behind Werner. However, he can match him for sprint speed and his 94 acceleration edges it.
33. Modou Barrow
Also with 93 sprint speed and 94 acceleration, this left midfielder is currently playing in the Championship.
32. Hirving Lozano
81 rated but definitely an exciting prospect considering his 86 potential. His 93 sprint speed and 94 acceleration is invaluable on the wing.
31. Elliott List
A 60 rated striker that can reach 66 overall. His 93 sprint speed and 95 acceleration is incredible considering he plays in England’s third tier.
30. Jonathan Biabiany
Another ageing winger. The Frenchman still has an impressive 93 sprint speed and 95 acceleration.
29. Sadio Mane
Unsurprisingly makes our list of the fastest players in FIFA 19. 93 sprint speed and 95 acceleration is deadly enough, whether he grows a little more or not.
28. Kingsley Coman
His age and 87 potential make him an interesting option for left midfield. 93 sprint speed and 95 acceleration is more than enough to beat most right backs.
27. Kekuta Manneh
Another left midfielder, but the American is 69 rated and has 76 potential so might be more appropriate if you’re playing in a lower league. He also has 93 sprint speed but his 96 acceleration beats Coman’s.
26. Douglas Costa
Unlikely to grow any more but shouldn’t start to decline for a few seasons. The skilful Juventus winger has the joint-best acceleration in the game at 97, but his 93 sprint speed means he finishes outside the top half.
25. Oliver Burke
Not the best acceleration at 85, but his 94 sprint speed lands him spot #25. Considering he is only 70 overall, those stats could improve by the time the right midfielder hits his 81 potential.
24. Gboly Ariyibi
Despite his 94 sprint speed, 87 acceleration means he is more effective over longer distances. A 67 rated right midfielder who has 72 potential.
23. Dimitri Oberlin
An interesting striking option. 94 sprint speed and 89 acceleration is phenomenal for a 69 rated player. Even better is the fact he can reach 81 overall in the right conditions.
22. Devante Cole
Another striker, but not quite as highly rated – 66 overall with 73 potential. Can match Oberlin’s 94 sprint speed but his 90 acceleration is superior.
21. Clinton N’Jie
74 rated striker that can grow a little and hit his 77 potential. 94 sprint speed and 91 acceleration is seriously impressive.
20. Erling Knudtzon
No real growth potential but if you’re looking for a striker around the 70 mark, you’ll have a hard time beating 94 sprint speed and 92 acceleration.
19. Ryan Fredericks
Also has 94 sprint speed and 92 acceleration, making him one of the quickest full backs in the game. The West Ham man can hit 76 overall but starts out at 73.
18. Frank Acheampong
If you need a reliable and pacey striker, Acheampong may be your man. 94 sprint speed and 92 acceleration is very good for a 75 rated player. His 80 potential means he could get even better.
17. Inaki Williams
Another striker with 94 sprint speed and 92 acceleration. His 81 rating and 87 potential means he is more suited to a Champions League level club.
16. Vinicius Junior
Another player with 94 sprint speed, 92 acceleration but the Real Madrid youngster is a left winger. His 77 rating is decent enough but they splashed the cash because of his 92 potential.
15. Rashad Muhammed
Considering this striker is only 61 overall and is only likely to hit 64 at his peak, 94 sprint speed and 93 acceleration is exceptional.
14. Alex Kiwomya
Pace stats at 94 and 93 are useful in a right midfielder. Kiwomya is rated 62 overall but has a potential of 74, making it likely that a team outside of League One snaps him up.
13. Thievy Bifouma
Another right midfielder with 94 sprint speed and 93 acceleration. Bifouma is a more readymade option starting out at 75 overall.
12. Jonas Aguirre
An incredibly pacey left midfielder, considering his overall rating is only 68. The Argentinian has 94 for both sprint speed and acceleration.
11. Tom Barkhuizen
Barkhuizen also has 94 for both pace attributes. However, he plays on the right, is rated 71 overall and can reach 74.
10. Michaell Chirinos
Plays on the left but makes the top 10 paciest players in FIFA 19 because of his 74 potential and 67 starting rating. 94 acceleration and 94 sprint speed makes him worthy of the #10 spot.
9. Luis Advincula
Unlikely to grow further than his 74 rating. 94 sprint speed and 95 acceleration makes him the fastest right back in FIFA 19.
8. Gelson Martins
Now at Atletico Madrid, the right midfielder is rated 82 overall with 87 potential. Can beat most back lines with 94 sprint speed and 95 acceleration.
7. Ihlas Bebou
A solid right midfield choice at 76 overall but 81 potential. The first player on this list to have 95 sprint speed, he also has a very respectable 91 acceleration.
6. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
The fastest striker in FIFA 19, if you’re going by their primary positions. His 88 rating means he’s already one of the best attackers in the game, but 95 sprint speed and 93 acceleration is incredible.
5. Jurgen Damm
The 75 rated right midfielder isn’t a high growth player, but 95 sprint speed and 94 acceleration means he steals the #5 spot from Aubameyang.
4. Gareth Bale
Can match Damm’s 95 sprint speed and 94 acceleration, but his 88 overall rating means he has a lot more ability in other areas.
3. Leroy Sane
Number three on our list has 96 sprint speed and 93 acceleration. The Manchester City and Germany international is already rated 86 overall but has a mouthwatering potential of 93.
2. Kylian Mbappe
Whether you play him on the wing or as a striker, Kylian Mbappe is a revelation. A 96 rating for both sprint speed and acceleration is a worry for opposition defences. Don’t forget that although he’s already earned a 87 rating, he has the potential to hit 95 one day.
1. Adama Traore
The fastest player in FIFA 19 career mode is Adam Traore. Although Douglas Costa can match his 97 acceleration, only two others equal his 96 sprint speed. The 75 rated right winger is currently at Wolves, but his 86 potential means he’s bound to find his way to a bigger club eventually.
