I really don't see the issue you have here and surely don't see any grounds to terminate these guys? ESPECIALLY mid season? There have to be teams near the at/near the bottom of EVERY league EVERY season.
It's a dynasty league and they're so diffrent. That your losing owners are actively tending to their teams is a good sign. That they aren't moving their players in "hope to hit the lottery" type trades and risky moves is also GOOD IMO. Matter of fact, I'd want most bottom feeders in any dynasty league to do the same. Owners manage and participate differently and these guys could very likely be patiently building for the long term. ie building a dynasty.

Who knows how this will wash out? Speculating on prospects is one the most enjoyable aspects of this hobby but it's by no means EZ? Yes Bullington is ranked below the others per the "expert" opinions BUT that doesn't necessarily mean he won't have a better career than some (all?) of them. The "experts" miss many more than they hit. Another beautiful thing about this hobby is that everyone sees (even the established players) differently. I think it's a mistake to impose your belief's on player rankings to another owner. As with all the other choices, let them build their own dynasties how they see fit.
NOTE the following is all assumptive and I apologize if it's indeed offtrack: Reading between the lines, my guess is a few top teams are frustrated that they can't swindle these owners out of some of their better assets and the percieved "lack of friendliness" could simply be that they're tired of these mercenary attempts. Also, some folks are busier than others or they may simply be tiring of the "obviously superior" takes the top teams interject on their "obviously incompetent" managerial decisions? So why not boot em and just steal their assets?? JMHO but I think you might be worried about the wrong owners here.
