But look at a bunch of the threads in this forum. Leagues without trade deadlines are now dealing with possible collusion, playoff teams trading with non-playoff teams, etc... At some point you need to stop trades, regardless of how bye weeks fall.
Everyone knows what bye week players are on when they draft them and it is the same for every owner. Not every player is of equal value anyway, so I fail to understand why you would risk compromising fairness in your league just to correct some type of small, foreknown inequality with a handful of players who happen to have late bye weeks?
So my suggestion, if you're really that concerned about the decreased trade value of players with late bye weeks, don't draft them. That's part of draft strategy, I suppose - I certainly wouldn't change my league rules because of it...
