Keeper league ethics help
10 team keeper league where we keep 14 players, including max 1 DEF.
I finished 2nd last this year, thanks to inheriting an abysmal team two seasons ago. Anyway, the 49ers defense was dropped last week ahead of the New England matchup by a playoff team. I still have the opportunity to drop and pick up players off waivers, and my defenses (DET, CAR, ATL) aren't really keeper worthy as it stands. So it would seem picking up SF off waivers would be a wise move.
Now, how big of a dick move is it for a team not in the playoffs to pick up a potential keeper at this stage, possibly preventing a playoff team from doing the same for the championship game or consolation final, both of which have monetary implications? I think it's unlikely, since they're on the road in Seattle, but still, it's a top-5 defense.
