Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey lead the way. Of course.

FIFA 15 comes out tomorrow, which means it's time to pour over the player ratings. Specifically, it's time to pour over the player ratings of the United States players.

Unsurprisingly, Tim Howard is the highest rated American player, checking in at an 82 overall. Clint Dempsey is the highest rated field player, checking in right behind him at an 81.

Maybe most surprising in the ratings is how long DaMarcus Beasley is. He was pretty good at the World Cup, has a long pedigree, was plenty solid in Liga MX last season and MLS this season, and is the lowest rated national teamer at 65.

If FIFA ratings were legitimate enough to raise concern, Michael Bradley being the only player expected to play a central role in 2018 rated above a 74 would be problematic. But they are FIFA ratings so who cares.

Tim Howard: 82
Clint Dempsey: 81
Michael Bradley: 80
Brad Guzan: 78
Jermaine Jones: 77
Jozy Altidore: 74
Fabian Johnson: 74
Kyle Beckerman: 74
Nick Rimando: 74
Omar Gonzalez: 74
Aron Johannsson: 74
Matt Besler: 73
Geoff Cameron: 73
Alejandro Bedoya: 73
Timothy Chandler: 73
Graham Zusi: 73
Mix Diskerud: 72
Chris Wondolowski: 72
John Brooks: 71
Brad Davis: 70
Bill Hamid: 68
DeAndre Yedlin: 68
Julian Green: 67
DaMarcus Beasley: 65

As always, Mix is rated way too low, but that's because Mix could be a 99 and it would be too low.
