The 10 best FC 24 RB players and top alternatives

From Lucy Bronze to Ashley Lawrence, TAA to Kieran Trippier, here are the best FC 24 RB players in EA's latest PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch game.

FC 24 best RB: Bronze and Alexander-Arnold

As football has modernized, so has the role of the best FC 24 RB players. While full-backs would rarely pass the halfway line once upon a time, the emergence of players like Roberto Carlos and later Dani Alves helped redefine the role through their buccaneering approach to attacking the line. No longer the rigid wardens of the right flank, the best right-backs get involved with every phase of play, and are even capable of scoring bangers here and there.

Picking out the sports game’s brightest right-backs from our EA FC 24 ratings list and beyond, this guide will give you the full rundown on who we the best RB 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 RB

The best FC 24 RB ratings are:

  • Lucy Bronze – 87
  • Trent Alexander-Arnold – 86 
  • Ashley Lawrence – 86
  • Giovanni Di Lorenzo – 85
  • Kieran Trippier – 85
  • Ona Batlle – 85
  • Reece James – 84
  • Achraf Hakimi – 84
  • Marta Torrejón – 84
  • Ashleigh Neville – 84

First up we have none other than Barcelona’s very own Lucy Bronze. Touted as one of the best to ever do it in the women’s game, Bronze has multiple UEFA Women’s Champions League titles to her name, winning the competition with both Lyon and Barca. Though she missed out on doing the international double with England in the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, she did pick up a 2022 UEFA Women’s Euros title.

While Trent Alexander-Arnold had a woeful time with Liverpool last year, the wing-back-turned-CM was able to rediscover his prolific form towards the end of the season. Whether or not Jürgen Klopp will eventually convert him to an out-and-out CM remains to be seen, but for now he’s still being deployed as a right-back.

It’s a big year for Ashley Lawrence. After seven seasons with Paris Saint-Germain, the Canadian has crossed the Channel to link up with FA Women’s Super League side Chelsea. A versatile right-back with plenty of pace, we can definitely see why she currently has a higher FUT price than Bronze, according to FUTWIZ.

The ascendancy of Napoli star Giovanni Di Lorenzo is truly in full-force. Having dazzled as part of last year’s Serie A-winning side, the Italian has jumped up a whole three rating points overall. An impressive all-rounder, Di Lorenzo is a must-have for any Italian football enjoyers out there.

At 32 years of age, Kieran Trippier is ageing like a fine wine, and was paramount to Newcastle’s domestic surge which eventually led to Champions League qualification for this year’s competition – the first time the Magpies have been in it since 2003. While Trippier’s no spring chicken, his performances last year earned him a +1, and a spot in the top ten.

FC 24 RB top alternatives

The top right-backs in FC 24 are certainly impressive. However, there are plenty of top players – some serving a different primary position, others flying under the radar – which should definitely be considered for your teams. They include:

  • Marcos Llorente – 84
  • Reece James – 84
  • Juan Cuadrado – 80

The first recommendation on our list is Atletico Madrid’s Marcos Llorente. The Spaniard is ridiculously versatile positionally, and can be played anywhere down the right-hand side, as well as in center-midfield. Looking at his impressive stat spread, Llorente is on the cusp of ‘Gullit Gang’ greatness.

Next up we have Chelsea’s Reece James. With five-out-of-six stat categories rated as 80+, the Englishman is another fantastic all-rounder that serves as a solid alternative to the pricey Kyle Walker.

Finally, Inter Milan’s Juan Cuadrado may not be a top option for long in FC 24 Career Mode due to his age, but he’s certainly still got the pace to zoom down the right flank. Though he’s primarily a right-midfielder, similarly to Llorente, Cuadrado can also be deployed anywhere down the right-hand side.

The importance of RB players in EA FC 24

All of the best EA FC 24 formations utilize an RB in some capacity, as they are a mainstay in a typical four-person defense. Of course, there are formations out there like the 3-5-2 which uses three center-backs and two attacking wing-backs on the flanks, but nowadays even traditional full-backs will regularly contribute to attacking phases in a game.

Indeed, the best RB players are important because they combine defensive stability, offensive contributions, and tactical adaptability, making them essential to any well-balanced team. It’s no surprise that young stars like Frimpong are being linked with big-money moves when they can do it all down the right-hand side.

And there is our compilation of the best EA FC 24 RB ratings. While some of the game’s longstanding stars are gradually descending in the rankings, others are rising as they reach their peak performance.
