Welcome to the first post of our FIFA 16 Ultimate Team Hidden Gems series where we will list 10 amazing and cheap players each post that many of you overlooked while playing the game. Without further ado let’s see who we have today on our list:
The first hidden gem that we got for you is Vincent Aboubakar from FC Porto after joining the Portuguese giants in August 2014. This guy is the true meaning of beast by just looking at his card stats.
His best in-game stats are 87 Sprint Speed, 82 Acceleration, 87 Shoot Power, 84 Strength, 81 Finishing, 82 Acceleration, 79 Stamina, 77 Ball Control and 80 Positioning, which combined with his H/M workrates, 3* skill moves, 3* weak foot, “Tries To Beat Defensive Line” trait and his height of 184cm | 6’0″ results in an absolute nightmare for defenders and goalkeepers.
His card stats already tell he’s an amazing well-rounded CM but let’s go and see some of his key in-game stats: 85 Sprint Speed, 83 Acceleration, 80 Reactions, 80 Dribbling, 84 Shot Power, 82 Crossing, 78 Standing Tackle, 78 Long Passing, 78 Strength and 91 Stamina!
The pace and stamina go very well with his H/H workrates and his 3*Skill Moves and 4*Weak Foot, making him an absolute monster in the midfield. All of this for just 900 coins! For a more detailed view of his stats please visit his FUTHead or Futwiz profile.
Some of you might already know about Danny from Zenit, but we couldn’t leave him out of the list because he is so good and cheap!
At first glance you can see how amazing those card stats but let’s dig deeper and see what in-game stats he’s hiding: 84 Sprint Speed & Acceleration, 84 Agility, 86 Ball Control, 85 Dribbling, 82 Positioning, 84 Vision, 79 Free Kick, 85 Short Passing and 80 Long Passing.
All of those stats combined with his H/L workrates, 4* Skill Moves and 4* Weak Foot makes him one of the best players on his position in FUT 16. You can get him for the decent price of just 500 coins! For a more detailed view of his stats please visit his FUTHead or Futwiz profile.
Our 4th gem of the day is Bebé, who is currently playing for Rayo Vallecano after a disappointing time at Old Trafford. Don’t be tricked by his overall rating because he’s one of the most OP strikers in the game.
His 88 Sprint Speed, 80 Dribbling, 85 Shot Power, 78 Long Shots, 77 Ball Control, 77 Stamina and 82 Strength fused with the M/L workrates, 3* skill moves, 3* weak foot and his height of 190cm | 6’2″ makes him a deadly player in front of goal. He goes for the small price of 400 coins across all platforms!
His 75 OVR rating is a pure lie because he has some stunning in-game stats like: 80 Sprint Speed, 77 Dribbling, 79 Standing Tackle, 80 Crossing, 81 Jumping, 89 Stamina and 91 Aggression. The pace and the crossing combined with the H/M workrates, “Long Passer” trait, the 3* skills moves and 3* weak foot makes Dubarbier one of the finest left-backs in the game! You can buy him for only 400 coins.
If you plan to build a cheap BPL squad then Heung Min Son, following his arrival at Tottenham this summer, is a must!
The 77 rated left-midfielder has some incredible stats in-game such as: 86 Sprint Speed, 85 Acceleration, 83 Dribbling, 86 Long Shots, 82 Shot Power, 79 Reactions, 78 Ball Control, 81 Finishing and 80 Positioning. The M/M workrates aren’t great but the 3* skill moves and 5* weak foot make up for them.
We recommend switching his position to LW and use him in a 4-3-3 formation! His market value is around 600 coins and you can’t get a better deal for that price. For a more detailed view of his stats please visit his FUTHead or Futwiz profile.
Don’t get fooled by his overall rating because Piotr Trochowski is one of the most complete offensive Central Midfielders in FIFA 16!
If we get a closer look at this in-game ratings we can see that he has 80 Ball Control, 79 Dribbling, 82 Agility, 86 Balance, 83 Shot Power,82 Long Shots, 83 Free Kick, 77 Long Passing, and 78 Vision. To top these stats, he has M/M workrates, 4* Skill Moves, 5* Weak Foot and the “Long Shot Taker” trait that will allow you to score some amazing long-range goals.
We recommend changing his position to CAM, otherwise pair him in the middle with a strong defensive midfielder. Getting him will cost you only 400 coins. For more stats details please visit his profile at FUTHead or Futwiz.
Our first silver hidden gem of the day is Idriss Saadi who plays for Cardiff City. After having a great previous season at Clermont, the Frenchman is a good choice for Championship betting scorecasts this season.

All of those stats on a 73 rated silver player!! Let’s not mention the 3* skill moves, the 3* weak foot and his H/M workrates.
For being only a 65 rated silver player he has some outstanding in-game ratings like 84 Sprint Speed, 80 Acceleration, 76 Heading, 88 Stamina, 88 Aggression, 90 Strength and 92 Jumping! His 187cm | 6’1″ height, H/M workrates and “Power Header” trait makes him an eminent danger on set pieces.
The Nigerian non-rare silver center back has some impressive key stats in-game such as 76 Sprint Speed, 74 Acceleration, 74 Marking, 76 Standing Tackle, 73 Sliding Tackle, 72 Aggression, 80 Strength and 82 Jumping.
