Teams in contention will not tank as they want to place in the money. The bad teams will either just not log in or try to do the best they can as finishing last no longer carries with it a reward.

For example, if in H2H week 17, a team is already eliminated from the playoffs, what is to keep a "smart" owner from dropping the majority of his team in and effort to pick up prospects through the FA auction wire for $1 or $2? By doing this, the owner gets a jump on their keeper options for the next season.
The negative of course is the potential influx of "good" players into the FA pool right before the start of the playoffs. I don't want a team to have a decided advantage late in the season simply because another owner who was out of the playoffs decided to drop all their star players to try and reload with keeper prospects.
Any other league deal with this issue?

Ya this doesnt do much though. There are a few teams that are out of it way before sept. Not alot of teams but a few, bad draft, injuries, people giving up whatever. These teams in keeper leagues are the problem. Teams that are in contention cant use their bench spots for a bunch of prospects. Its certainly an unfair result when i bad team having a bad year can give up and be stacked for the future.
