Player props can be useful in a variety of ways -- from taking advantage of them straight up to measuring a player's potential to produce in daily fantasy baseball on FanDuel. Here, we're going to focus on the former.

Utilizing our projections -- which are powered by numberFire -- as a guide, here are some MLB player props bets that look appealing via the MLB odds at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Please note that betting lines and projections may change throughout the day after this article is published. Also, the weather may be an issue in some locations.

MLB Player Props

Marcell Ozuna to Record an RBI (+110)

Marcell Ozuna and the Atlanta Braves will have to pick up the slack with Ronald Acuna Jr. officially out for the remainder of the season.

Don't get it twisted -- the Braves still have a great offense, one highly capable of driving in runs night in and night out. That's why I'm going right back to them tonight -- especially against the Washington Nationals and Jake Irvin.

Irvin has actually had a better season than expected for the Nats so far, but it isn't a matchup to steer away from when picking an offense against him. After all, Atlanta has a 5.07 implied total against Irvin and Washington tonight -- the second-best of the entire slate, per numberFire's heat map.

The Nationals' starter has a 3.88 SIERA but an expected ERA of 4.73 -- signaling that offense should be had against the right-handed pitcher. The 36.2% fly-ball rate and 32.4% hard-hit rate against Irvin are good enough to have trust in the Braves' offense tonight -- especially Ozuna, who I like to Record an RBI (+110).

Ozuna has done an incredible job driving in runs this season -- recording 47 RBIs, tying him for the second-best mark in MLB. He's also swinging the bat well otherwise, hitting .310 at the plate with a .425 wOBA.

With no more Acuna, Ozuna will need to continue stepping up for the Braves. Notably, Ozuna has gone four games without an RBI -- he's due.

Jose Ramirez to Record 3+ Total Bases (+125)

Jose Ramirez came through for us last week -- let's roll with him against tonight as he will have the beauty of Coors Field to play with.

The Cleveland Guardians will take on the Colorado Rockies tonight, giving the Guardians the best implied total of the evening at 5.64. Colorado will start Ryan Feltner -- always a great matchup for opposing offenses. Through 10 starts and 55 innings pitched, Feltner has a 5.07 ERA and 4.05 SIERA. He's also allowed six home runs, but none of them have come at Coors Field -- yet. That's where the Guardians and their overall power come in.

Ramirez has been a top power hitter this season, popping 15 home runs while adding 11 doubles and a triple. The third baseman has an excellent 51.3% fly-ball rate and 34.9% hard-hit rate -- which will play perfectly at Coors Field. It's why I like Ramirez to Record 3+ Total Bases (+125).

In his last four games, Ramirez has managed to record three or more total bases three times -- totaling three home runs and three doubles in that stretch. He's a hot hitter right now, and this is a smash spot for him today.

With it being Dinger Tuesday on FanDuel Sportsbook, I like Ramirez's +350 odds to hit a home run, too.

Aaron Judge to Record an RBI (-110)

There's no hitter on the planet who is hotter than Aaron Judge right now, as his month of May has been otherworldly.

Judge is hitting an insane .383 during the month with an .580 wOBA, 11 home runs, 25 RBIs, and a 1.443 OPS. As you'd expect, his ISO is also through the roof at .556. It doesn't get better than Judge right now.

In terms of his batted-ball stats, he has a 55.9% fly-ball rate and unbelievable 55.9% hard-hit rate in May. That's why the matchup almost doesn't matter for tonight, but it's a good one nonetheless.

The New York Yankees face the Los Angeles Angels, who will start struggling starting pitcher Griffin Canning. The righty has a 5.05 ERA, which matches his SIERA. Canning also has a 45.7% fly-ball rate and can't miss bats as he boasts the lowest strikeout rate of his career at 16.1%. The 28-year-old has already allowed nine home runs, too.

New York has a solid 5.06 implied total against Canning and the Angels tonight -- setting up Judge for a huge performance.

With how he's swinging the bat, Judge's -110 odds to Record an RBI make sense, too.
