I initially bought this card as an investment, hoping he'd rise in price post winter rating refresh. However, sadly, his price surprisingly dropped after the refresh. This may have been due to his injury, or simply because people over invested and then panic sold, but either way I decided to use him instead of lose coins. Reading the prior review I was worried, as I thought he may have not been that good. I started playing him as a Left CAM in the 4-2-3-1, because I thought his pace would be good for a left outside mid. However, he was horrible, wasn't involved, didn't produce anything, and just felt like a waste of space. As a result, his stats were something like 12 games with 2 goals 2 assists or something terrible. I wish that I had taken a screenshot at the time, because those stats were not at all reflective of the player.
I moved reus to the central CAM spot, and all of a sudden he is a completely different player. He felt faster, stronger, and just exponentially better then that player who was out wide. REUS IS GOOD POST PATCH! Do not be fooled or tricked by prior reviews, this player is very, very good. He can shoot on either foot with power or with finesse, with 4* weak foot and 91 Shooting. He can dribble quickly and with the use of skills, with 4* skills and 91 dribbling. And, luckily, he was fast, I was just using him incorrectly. After moving him to the central CAM he now was 51 goals and 28 assists in 58 games. That after his terrible start, is exceptional.
The most important thing I can say about this card, is that if Reus gets another inform returning from injury in these coming weeks, this card will be one of the best CAMs in FIFA 19. The only issue is his stamina, which is only a minor problem, and if that stat gets an upgrade, Reus is almost a perfect CAM. This card is currently worth about 750k, and is undervalued on the market. A good investment, because one more inform will place this card near a million coins.
I am an Elite 3/Gold 1 player in division 2 with about a 2200 skill rating consistently
Pace- Fast enough to run away from defenders and a quick enough turn of pace to lose midfielders in the center of the pitch
Shooting- Unbelievable, enough said. Set pieces or open play, doesn't matter, kid can shoot
Passing- Very good at passing, not the best, but very good
Dribbling- One of his best stats, very close ball control sharp turns and can dribble at speed
The only con is his stamina. And if you play him in a wide position he may not be as productive
