Redskins' Josh Norman earns Week 10 NFLPA community MVP

Redskins' Josh Norman is using his platform as a professional football player to help those in need, and this week it earned him NFLPA's community MVP.

The cornerback has been raising funds for youth enrichment programs in the D.C. area, as well as starting a campaign to help those affected in Puerto Rico by Hurricane Maria. 

Norman's foundation, Starz24, provides backpacks and school supplies for children in need and creates initiatives for students at Jefferson Middle School Academy in D.C.. He recently raised almost $100,000 for Starz24's Imagination Team Rooms, a STEM-based "makerspaces" that will be placed in several inner city middle and high schools. 

Then, when Puerto Rico was devastated by Hurricane Maria back in September, Norman started a social media campaign to help those affected. The campaign brought in $150,000. Norman also donated $100,000 of his own with part of the money going to the Boys & Girls clubs in Puerto Rico.

I look at it as I’m on this earth to help people and help them be the best that they can be,” Norman said. “I have the means to do so. I’m going to do that.

Every week during the regular season, the NFLPA selects a NFL player who is making a difference in their community. They are going to be making a $10,000 contribution to his foundation or a charity of his choice in addition to an in-kind donation on behalf of their supporting partner, Delta Private Jets.

I am so honored to be recognized by the NFLPA for my work in the community,” Norman said. “All of this work is bigger than football. I want to make an impact in the lives of children who need it most and to help develop those children to help change the future.

D.J. Swearinger kept his promise to a young fan in Sunday's game against Vikings

D.J. Swearinger is a man of his word.

Even though the Redskins lost to the Vikings 38-30 Sunday, D.J. Swearinger had quite possibly the best game of his career. 

And prior to kickoff, Swearinger told a young fan on the sideline that he was going to get him two picks, which he then proceeded to do. 

His first interception came with 3:29 left in the third and then he did it again in the fourth making it his first career two-interception game.

Swearinger voiced that he has always wanted to be a leader for the Redskins and is thankful he is finally getting the opportunity to do so.

Keep doing what you're doing, D.J. because we're enjoying it.

Fantasy Football -- Who's number 1 heading into Week 11?

Fantasy Football -- Who's number 1 heading into Week 11?

We've reached the final week with teams on a bye and this one shouldn't be too problematic considering the Panthers, Colts, Jets and 49ers are the ones resting. Outside of Cam Newton, Carlos Hyde and T.Y. Hilton, not a ton of talent missing this week.

Meanwhile, owners must finish strong over the final 3-4 weeks of the regular season or fear missing their league's playoffs. Without further delay, here's a look at the Week 11 rankings that hopefully can get you there.

(UPDATE -- (* Soon after this posted the Bills benched Tyrod Taylor for rookie Nate Peterman. Yikes. Whatever the Bills are thinking about the long-term, this won't help fantasy owners now.  Expectations for LeSean McCoy take a dip, though he remains a must-start. Kelvin Benjamin already is in the WR4 range. For those now in need of a QB for Week 11, Blake Bortles and Eli Manning are your best hopes.)
