Bad idea. I assume this a heads-up league. If that is the case, then playoff teams are going to be playing these non-playoff teams. So perhaps a team that was scoring big at the beginning of the season and handed out some losses now suffers injuries to Bulger and others...are you going to restrict him from making moves that would make his team competitive? That is hardly fair. You are making a team weaker than it otherwise would be.
Example: You are going to the playoffs but you can get a first round bye IF you win this week and IF Team X also loses. You're playing another playoff bound team who has been playing strong. You had lost in Week 1 to Team Y.
Team Y has since suffered some injuries and doesn't even have a 2nd RB to start. He is playing Team X (who you need to lose). Unfortunately, even though they were really tough when you played them, Team Y can't even field an entire team now because they've been locked from making any moves.
As you can see, league integrity means that all teams (including those mathematically eliminated) play their best, including making moves to make their team better. What if Favre goes out and Rodgers came in and threw for 300+ yards and looked phenomenal? Teams 1-8 on the waiver wire can't even acquire him, making him available to a playoff team who otherwise wouldn't have had the opportunity.
If you're afraid of roster dumping, which it sounds like you are, just notify the league that it will not be tolerated. At your sole discretion, if roster dumping or collusion is suspected, you will reverse those moves and THEN lock the team. Most people are as interested in league integrity as you are, especially if they know that any funny business will not work anyway.
