FIFA 18 Ultimate Team - Best Players to Trade With - All Skill Levels - Updated 2018

Updated on March 23, 2018

FIFA 18 Ultimate Team is out now and people are eager to get ahead of the game and beat their friends. One of the biggest success factors FIFA Ultimate Team is how much money you have, so follow this guide to go from rags to riches.

This is a list of players who I have have traded successfully. The majority of the ones on this page are rare Gold Players, but there are players in all price ranges so you can trade no matter how little money you have. I wouldn't recommend this page if you have less than 20,000 coins. For now, your time is better spent playing matches. Once you play a few seasons or sell enough players to get that initial 20,000 you can come back here to make megabucks!

Which Price Range Should I Use?

Knowing how much you should spend on players is easy, and can be divided into three easy steps:

  1. Record your total coins.
  2. Divide your total coins by 20.
  3. The result is how much you should spend on each player.

It really is that simple, for example, lets say I have 80,000 coins...

  1. 80,000
  2. 80,000/20=4,000
  3. 4,000 is the max that should be spent on each player

Now I can see that I shouldn't buy anyone for more than 4,000 each. This allows me to buy or sell at least 20 of each player.

Trading in FIFA 18 Ultimate Team

Trading in FIFA 18 is a risky game. Overpaying for a player can end up costing you a lot of money, while underpaying can make you a lot. One important thing to remember when playing the game is that if you are buying a player for your team, buy it as if you wanted to trade it later for a profit. This means when you eventually come to sell your team you make profit.

A lot of players get stuck in the cycle of trading for a while, then buying a team, not liking it, then selling it for a loss. Making teams out of popular players lends yourself the opportunity to profit.

      Good guide. You should do one with the specific times to buy specific players and then when to sell. That would be the ultimate guide to coin making!!
