You wanna see Titans RB Chris Johnson race a cheetah?

Fantasy football owners would rather see Chris Johnson @ChrisJohnson28 outrun a safety, but this will have to do for now.
Johnson and Bears wide receiver Devin Hester @D_Hest23 recently raced a cheetah for a TV special on Nat Geo Wild that will air in November. The special will be titled "Man vs. Cheetah." Of course. The results of the races haven't been leaked -- Oh, I'm waiting with baited breath -- but Johnson did speak on the experience.
"This is most incredible challenge I've ever faced," Johnson said via "I wanted to go up against the fastest in the world and test myself, and this was it!"

Fantasy Analysis:

In case you were wondering, a barrier was placed between Johnson, Hester and the big cat so that nothing tragic took place. Johnson holds the fastest 40-yard dash time in NFL Combine history at 4.24 seconds. If he runs at that speed for a full hour, he would be moving at about 19 miles per hour. Cheetahs, however, can run at 70 MPH or more, so unless Johnson and Hester got an Ochocinco-like head start, they didn't stand a chance.
But that's OK. As long as Chris Johnson didn't get eaten, he should be a fine RB2 this season.
What man vs. animal sprint race would you like to see next? I think a Galapagos tortoise versus Eli or Peyton Manning would be fascinating.
