Matt Ryan said he spent his offseason trying to add some bulk.

“Heading into each offseason, I try and take two or three areas to really improve on,’’ Ryan said. "This year, it was getting a little bit stronger in the weight rooms. So I’ve been working out pretty hard this offseason to try and put on a little bit of weight to get a little bit stronger and I think that’ll help me out on the field. Also, I think we need to be more effective with some of our throws down the field and that’s something that I’ve certainly worked on early this offseason. And I think a combination of those two things will help our success.’’

Fantasy Impact: 

This could be very good news for Julio Jones who is most likely to benefit from an increase in (accurate) throws downfield. Ryan finished the season as the #8 QB and seems likely to finish in the top 10 again in 2012.
