Sleeper Watch: Super Bowl Edition

Who will be this year’s David Tyree?

Who will be the guy that comes from the bottom of the depth chart to make a major contribution in winning the Super Bowl for his team?

Each team will need their benches to contribute in the most important game of the season if they want to bring home a title. Here is hoping that there is at least one great game-changing play this year like Tyree’s catch last season.

The following are sleepers you should watch for on Sunday.


Steve Breaston, WR, Cardinals

Breaston needs to have a big day for the Cardinals to have a successful offense. Anquan Boldin is still going to be a little banged up and Kurt Warner is going to get tons of pressure from the Steelers’ ferocious defense.

Breaston needs to be a guy that Warner can rely on when he is in danger.


J.J. Arrington, RB, Cardinals - Arrington burned me in the first week of the playoffs when I picked him as a sleeper. If the Cardinals get a lead, Arrington could be a non-factor, but if they trail, Arrington could be the running back catching swing passes and screens to help bring his team back into the game.

Remember what Darren Sproles did late against Pittsburgh earlier this season for inspiration?


Limas Sweed, WR, Steelers

Sweed had a chance to put out some good numbers against the Ravens defense in the AFC Championship Game, but he dropped the ball—literally.

His now-infamous drop at the goal line is a lasting memory for Pittsburgh fans and foes alike. Sweed has to be hungry to prove himself, and should get another chance with Hines Ward a bit banged up.


Mewelde Moore, RB, Steelers

Moore is to the Steelers as J.J. Arrington is to the Cardinals. MeMo is probably a little shiftier and capable of bigger plays in the passing game than Arrington, however.

He might get less opportunities with the way "Fast Willie Parker" has been playing, but Moore will catch a screen or two and could take one the distance.
