While I agree with you, there are consolation brackets that occur, so teams might want to still pick up players for that.
I would just wait until after the waiver period so the real playoff teams can get their fill first.
Well, in our league, there are no consolation brackets. We don't fight to see who is the 5th loser.
But, if there are consolation brackets in your leagues, the settings should be such that WW or FA pickups are not permitted - at all - by teams not vying for 1st place - even if there are other prizes for winning the consolation brackets (small cash prize or draft picks for next year).
It's not fair to those teams in the "real" playoffs if you scoop up a player that they could use, no matter if it is after the official WW period ends or not. If you grab Jason Avant this week after WW ends, and Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson get hurt in practice on Thursday, then you've got a player they can use. And to be honest - your season doesn't matter anymore. That may not be the best example, but I think you get where I'm going.
