Plenty of players still have a big red Q next to their name, hopefully not because they believe Hillary Clinton harvests babies, so late substitutions will be allowed.

Meanwhile:

All the major Q's are active - Antonio Brown, Cameron Brate and Sammy Watkins.

Tampa Bay seem to be at full strength on offence, while Kansas City will be missing 2 bit-part skill players in Ricky Seals-Jones and Darwin Thompson

Speaking of Honey Badgers, no-one's gone for Chris Godwin in any category.

No one got the first receivers (Godwin! and Byron Pringle) but Sting in the Tail banks $4 for the punt.

First 2 long passes aimed at my boy Hardman, but he got nowhere near them.

I have no idea who these people are or what this means.

Basically, if you score a 3-pointer from a slap-shot with the bases loaded, and there's no illegal offensive shift, that's a safety, but you can't get a bonus point for the Lambeau leap due to social distancing. Lemon Squezy.

Oh, and nobody got Gronk as the first TD scorer, and my one reception selection already has 2.

31 yard reception for Mike Evans. That's $10 each for Sting in the Tail and Jam Jar.

VAR controversy as the Buccs are ruled to have been stopped on the 1 yard line. Fatso Vita Vea blocked the camera shot. What's he even doing on offence?

Worse still, that's $6 each for Sting in the Tail, Jam Jar and SC for a 4th down attempt.

Are Kansas City deliberately self-destructing as a betting scam?

At half time, Sting in the Tail leads with $20, Jam Jar has $16 and SC has $6. Me and Smiffy have zip, sweet FA, bugger all.
Banana's all-or-nothing selection of zero TDs didn't pay off.

14 players had a reception. That's $8 for SC.
Nobody got a player with 1 reception. Who woulda thunk Mike Evans?

The longest TD was Fournette's 27yd rush. Nobody got that, we all imagined a Tyreek Hill bomb or sumthing.

And nobody got a player with an interception. Well, Mathieu had one but it was cancelled by lingerie on the field - I think that's what Nate Burleson called it.

I declare Sting in the Tail ($20) this year's champion, with the correct answers to questions 1, 4 and 7.
Jam Jar ($16) and SC ($14) fill out the podium, while me and Smiffy won naff all.

Oh, dear. MVP is decided by a public vote. How long has that been going on for? That's just a popularity contest.

I though Devin White deserved it. I mean, how often are Kansas City held to under 10 points?

But that's just the same with all the All Star Game nominations in all US sports leagues.
