Best FM18 Natural Fullbacks

Kings Players 4 Comments

Jordi Alba in action for FC Barcelona

Jordi Alba is probably the best natural left fullback in FM18.

In FM18, possessing or signing a very good full back can positively impact your team, especially if you’re using 4-men defensive line. It can also be a great advantage for your team. There’re a lot of good fullbacks in the market, and sometimes it’s difficult to make a choice. But this piece provides the lists of the best natural fullbacks in FM18.

While choosing a fullback, the most important attributes to consider are crossing, marking, tackling, anticipation, teamwork, work rate, acceleration, positioning, and stamina. Pace can only be considered if your tactic needs an attacking fullback. However, the players displayed here have the right attributes to be among the best in the FM18 database. All you have to do is to pick the one your team can afford.

The fullbacks presented below are divided into 2 main groups: Left Fullbacks and Right Fullbacks. But in each group, there’re two classes present; First Class and Second Class.

Left Fullbacks

First Class

The players contained in this list are of the highest quality. Some of them are very expensive and really hard to sign. But they worth every penny. If your team has the required capital, you should go for any of these players without hesitation.

Second Class

The players here, also, have good qualities but not as good as the first class players. Moreover, most of the players here have the potential ability to join the best of the bests. And you can get most of them easily by loan or full transfer.

Feel free to suggest any natural fullback you have experienced his ability in the comment box below. I may add that player to any of the above lists if he’s not on any of them.

Feel free to suggest any natural fullback you have experienced his ability in the comment box below. I may add that player to any of the above lists if he’s not on any of them.

  1. Kieran Tierney, Celtic. Random potential, but if the roll is good he becomes one of the best in the game. Even if it isn’t he is a second-class player.

      Thanks Georgios. I have added him on second class left fullback list. You’re right, he has a great potential to be a first class fullback. Thanks again.. Cheers.

      Alright. Thanks Dan. Let me check them out.

      Update: Sorry, I couldn’t add both players you mentioned because they are not natural fullbacks. Thanks again mate, I appreciate.
