FIFA 17 has a lot of legitimately great teams which consist of a lot of great players. And while another list already proves that you can have a lot of fun and success playing against them with those less established, there are also a lot of under the radar players on teams that are not as fun, or even good. Players that you can sign in Career Mode and immediately achieve success with them in your line-up.

The players on this list vary in age, experience and potential, but you should consider them when your budget is limited or another big name player snubs you. Big names require big money, but these guys over here? Not exactly. They are also on not so great teams, so it is much easier to obtain them.

This list is organized in a way to form a starting eleven set in the classic 4-4-2 formation. This allows the list to cover all of the crucial positions on the field instead of focusing too much on strikers or defenders. So while some virtual managers looking for a more defensively/offensively oriented list might be disappointed, this organization allows for a more complete list with versatile players.

11. GK - Guillermo Ochoa (Granada FC)

Highly coveted as a youngster, Ochoa clearly didn't live up to his potential, even though he had his moment in the sun during the 2014 World Cup. His cat-like reflexes translated to a 87 rating in the game, which is undoubtedly right. His 78 Positioning is also quite good.

The only problem is his Hands, rated at 69, but with good defenders this should not be a problem. With an overall rating of 79, Ochoa is the best, or at least the fastest, under the radar goalie in the game.
