How the Millers rate on FIFA 17

THE eagerly awaited FIFA 17 video game hit supermarket shelves earlier this week and with it, a raft of Millers fans rushed out to see how their favourite players rated.

EA Sports latest edition to its popular series has a long-running tradition of accurately marking players based on statistical knowledge, on attributes such as pace, passing, shooting and heading.

Goalkeeper Lee Camp, who picked up Rotherham’s player of the season award last year, is ranked as the best player in the Millers’ squad, with an overall rating of 70.

Striker Danny Ward — who has notched five times so far this season — is ranked second with an overall score of 69, the best of any of the striking options.

Club captain Lee Frecklington matches Ward’s overall rating and is deemed the stand-out midfielder, while experienced defender Kelvin Wilson, who was dropped for Tuesday’s loss at Huddersfield, also rated at 69.

Meanwhile, Middlesborough loanee Dael Fry — called up to the England U20 squad today — is the lowest rated defender in the squad.



Compare the scores to local rivals Sheffield Wednesday and their highest rated player overall is goalkeeper Kieren Westwood, who has stacked up a score of 76. Mind you, they did make the play-off final last season.
