- FIFA 21 Fodder FC
Yesterday EA released the Top 1000 Ratings for FIFA 21. They can be found here.
From season to season, ratings change. Some players become usable in-game, and some players change their status to ‘fodder’ – a card who’s price is tied to their SBC value.
A club that has a high amount of ‘fodder’ often becomes one of the most profitable targets for investment due to the strong links their players offer for chemistry purposes.
In FIFA 19, Fodder FC was Arsenal; Sokratis, Leno, Lacazette, and Mkhitaryan showed up frequently in cheapest solutions that year.
In FIFA 20, Lazio was your best fodder club option; Acerbi, Luis Alberto, Lucas Leiva, and Milinkovic-Savic had mediocre stats but were constantly among the cheapest for their respective ratings.
For FIFA 21, Lazio remains a solid Fodder FC option, and joining them is Atletico Madrid:
Lazio FIFA 21 Fodder
Luis Alberto – 85 rated (up from 84 in FIFA 20) and good Spanish links
Milinkovic-Savic – 85 rated and provides the CM connection to CDM Lucas Leiva and CAM Luis Alberto
Lucas Leiva – 84 rated, good Brazilian links, and connects CB Acerbi to CM Milinkovic-Savic
Acerbi – 83 rated, good Italian links, connects CDM Leiva to GK Strakosha, and is a CB (defenders tend to perform better than other positions)
Strakosha – 83 rated (up from 82 in FIFA 20) and strong link to Acerbi
Atletico FIFA 21 Fodder
Koke – 85 rated with good Spanish links
Felipe – 84 rated with good Brazilian links and provides a chemistry triangle between Giménez and one of the CMs
Partey – 84 rated, but might be expensive early on due to his good stats
Saúl – 84 rated with good Spanish links
Giménez – 84 rated (down from 85 in FIFA 20) and provides a chemistry triangle between Giménez and one of the CMs
Trippier – 83 rated (up from 80 in FIFA 20) and has the best fodder position
