What I've done over the years is play in a few leagues. I'd take the info of the most active players from each league and invite them all to play in My league. This greatly reduces the number of inactive players in your league. I actually have players( guys who I have never met) follow me to other leagues that I open, guys that I've played with for 5+ years. Using this strategy you can form active leagues. I've played in 12 team leagues where the turnover rate was 1-2 teams from year to year and the guys that did leave were still active of a majority of the season.
