Some assorted thoughts based on Week 17.

Week 17 was a really big one for those of us who like to dink around with what the Chiefs upcoming offseason.

Here's what I think we learned:

1. Mahomes isn't as accurate as Alex Smith, and can't make some of the intermediate passes as automatically as Alex has. He can also make a ton of throws Alex can't, however, and is going to BLAST OPEN this offense as teams start dropping 7 and 8 to contain him and Hill/Kelce. Kareem Hunt is going to be a fantasy stud for half a decade.

2. What's pretty fascinating is that the three dudes who are in our backfield -- Mahomes, Hunt, Butker -- in 2018 were rookies this year, and were all outstanding. The future is white-hot in KC.

3. Akeem Hunt deserves a minimal contract for 2018. He played really well today and you just need a guy in that 4th RB slot who can be a kick returner and spot runner.

4. Anthony Sherman also should be brought back, but I still think his contract he signed a few years back was too big. But he's a smart guy with a great locker room and field presence that contributes in special teams and in limited FB work. No other FB works as much as him -- if we can get him for $1.5m/year, it'll be a boon to the team. Anything higher than that is money you're taking away from a future defender who can help.

5. It's fitting that De'Anthony Thomas' career in Kansas City ended with a bonehead play that got him injured. He is good for three or four amazing athletic plays a season, but otherwise he is a net-negative. I'd like the Chiefs to find another lightning-fast gadget player like him, though, because having a guy like that can give you a few options a game you wouldn't otherwise have.

6. Alright, I think we all know Albert Wilson needs to come back. At the very least, to help Mahomes get up to speed. Mahomes clearly has chemistry with Wilson, and this has already been Wilson's best season. I'm thinking 3 years, $9m?

7. I'm convinced that Ehinger takes back the starting LG position next year over Witzmann. Fortunately, Witzmann can play both guard slots and right tackle, which makes him a more versatile backup to begin with. Will help with Zach Fulton likely leaving town this offseason. Cam Erving was also surprisingly serviceable at LT. I think he's a decent swing-tackle option after all.

8. The Chiefs may have something in Justin Hamilton at nose tackle. The run D was fairly stout up the gut today. I still have no idea what kind of DL Bob Sutton wants. Our DL under contract for 2018: Chris Jones, Allen Bailey, Justin Hamilton. That's it. And Bailey costs too much -- the Chiefs will likely bring RNR back, but it's becoming increasingly clear that they want two-gappers who can somehow rush the passer. We have nobody on our roster that can both two-gap brilliantly and rush the passer effectively. Logan is the only two-gapper. Jones is the only passrusher. RNR and Jenkins can both do a little of both. Chiefs need to trade off Allen Bailey and bring in a major free agent here and spend a major draft pick (or two). It's time to rebuild the DL.

9. I still think this team needs to bring Dee Ford back. I know everybody on the board hates it, but Kpass needs another year of grooming, and with Ford and Houston, you know one of those guys is going to get injured eventually and Kpass can get some serious snaps then. In addition, I think the Chiefs need to burn a high draft pick on passrusher. Ford is a goner after 2018, it's not clear if Kpass will pan out, and Houston is too injury-riddled. Besides, going into 2018 with Houston/Ford/Kpass/3rd rounder is a really solid depth chart at passrusher.

10. Not for nothing, but the Seahawks are rumored to be dumping Michael Bennett soon...

11. Ramik, gone. Maybe there's a future for Terrance Smith here but it's as a 4th LB behind Ragland, KPL, and Eligwe -- or as a 5th if DJ is somehow retained. I think Smith is a good dude to have on the back of the roster, though. I'd bring him back but who knows.

12. I think it's pretty clear at this point that Terrance Mitchell has turned into a pumpkin. I really like the guy, and I love how hard he plays. But unless he's willing to do a cheap, cheap contract in KC, I'd rather just roll with Peters and Revis on the outside (along with a high draft pick), and Nelson in the slot. The team has a ton of players that I think they'll keep for developmental depth: Acker, Reasoner...

KC needs another good pass rusher in the worse way. Most of the CBs we have do well in press-man but if they have to cover for 3.5-4 seconds anybody can be beat. I think that's why Sutton hasn't been keeping them in the offense's face that much. Knowing you will have pressure coming consistently from up front lets you take more chances. Even the donkey's db's get burned when they don't get pressure up front.

I'm thinking with Mahomes we need to look at our defense in sort of the way Indy did with Manning.

We're going to have a lot of 4th quarters where the pass rushers know they ain't playing the run.
