The 10 best FC 24 CAM players and top alternatives

From Bruno Fernandes to Florian Wirtz, Debinha to Rose Lavelle, here are the best FC 24 CAM players in EA's latest PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch game.

FC 24 best CAM: Fernandes and Musiala

The best FC 24 CAM players possess an unparalleled combination of finesse, vision, and goal-scoring prowess that leaves onlookers in awe. Not only do these playmaking puppeteers put defenses on strings with pinpoint passes, setting their strikers up for glory, but they’re also more than capable of producing moments of brilliance in front of goal.

Picking out the sports game’s most-prolific playmakers from our FC 24 ratings, this guide will give you the full rundown on who we the best CAM players in the FC 24 era are – be it in EA FC 24 Ultimate Team or even EA FC 24 Career Mode. We’ll also be offering up some top picks outside of the top 10 that can either dominate the opposition, or serve as more budget-friendly options if you don’t have the UT Coins or Career Mode dollars to stump up for the top talents.

Best FC 24 CAM

The best FC 24 CAM ratings are:

  • Bruno Fernandes – 88
  • Debinha – 88
  • Martin Ødegaard – 87
  • Lina Magull – 87
  • Rose Lavelle – 87
  • Jamal Musiala – 86
  • Jill Roord – 86
  • Florian Wirtz – 85
  • Julian Brandt – 84
  • Catarina Macario – 84

Starting from the top, Bruno Fernandes has once again showcased why he’s a crucial piece in Erik ten Hag’s Manchester United side. Boasting 16 G/A contributions last season, Fernandes thoroughly deserved the boost from the 86 overall rating he was given in last year’s game.

Next up we have Kansas City Current’s star summer signing, Debinha. The Brazilian found herself as one of only two non-US names on the NWSL Best XI list last year, beating out Rose Lavelle who made it into the Second XI. After notching up double-digit goals last year, the skillful winger is well on-track to do the same in 2023, despite operating in a brand new team.

While Fernandes has continued to assert his dominance over the Prem, Arsenal’s Martin Ødegaard has finally had the breakout season that many expected him to have during his Real Madrid days. With a remarkable 15 goals and seven assists to his name last season, Ødegaard spent long stretches of the 2022/23 campaign being compared to the indomitable Kevin De Bruyne, and at one point was even considered the best midfielder in the league altogether. As such, a +2 to his overall is more than merited.

Over in the Bundesliga, Bayern Munich fans will be elated to have two of the best CAMs in world soccer playing for their men and women’s teams. Both Lina Magull and the rapidly-ascending Jamal Musiala have been electric for the Bavarians. As the legendary Thomas Müller’s understudy, 20-year-old Musiala couldn’t be in a better environment to flourish into the one of the world’s best, and we fully expect to see some pretty spicy cards pop up for him throughout the season.

FC 24 CAM top alternatives

While it’s pretty clear why the best CAMs in our list have cemented their spots, there are plenty of great options that fall outside the top ten. These include:

  • Chuba Akpom – 85
  • Nabil Fekir – 83
  • Xavi Simons – 79

Having secured a summer move to Ajax after a record-breaking season at Middlesborough, Chuba Akpom has earned himself a Foundations SBC card that could be one of the best in the early part of FC 24’s life-cycle. While it’s going to set you back somewhere in the region of 70,000 coins to complete, Akpom can be deployed not only in his native role as a striker, but as a CAM and CF as well.

While Nabil Fekir isn’t going to carry your Career Mode saves long-term, his majoritively 80+ stat spread and variety of PlayStyles makes the 30-year-old a fantastic pick-up. If you’re looking for a top-quality CAM for your French or LALIGA team that won’t break the bank in FUT, then definitely consider him.

Finally, Dutch FC 24 Wonderkid Xavi Simons is a must-have in Career Mode, thanks to his undoubtedly-high potential and ability to play anywhere across the advanced line. He’s pacey, has great dribbling, and will only get better with each season.

The importance of CAM players in EA FC 24

While you won’t see a CAM in many of the best FC 24 formations on our list, there are plenty of systems that deploy a CAM, such as Arsenal’s 4-2-3-1 that sees Ødegaard sit behind Gabriel Jesus. There are even systems that fit in multiple CAMs like the 4-1-4-1 Julian Nagelsmann deployed at Bayern on occasion last season, setting up Müller and Musiala side-by-side behind Serge Gnabry.

The best CAMs are oftentimes the key to unlocking a densely-packed defense. When playing against a team that likes to sit deep, having nimble creatives that can slip a ball through any wall to the awaiting forward is a recipe for success. Additionally, modern CAMs can often come deep, collect the ball, and then ping it into the path of a winger to start a devastating counter.

And that’s our compilation of the best EA FC 24 CAM ratings. As some of the game’s long-standing stars begin to descend in the rankings, a new generation of rising talents is making its mark, while others are beginning to reach the peak of their careers.

Before you go, be sure to familiarize yourself with the FC 24 PlayStyles utilized by each CAM. When trying to snag a bargain on top FUT talent, make sure you’re using the FC 24 Web App to ensure you never miss out on the best players in one of the best soccer games. See you on the pitch.
