That rule is garbage. If players are not held over like in a keeper or dynasty then draft picks shouldn't be held over from the previous season as well. Say the Saquon Barkley owner is out of the playoffs by mid season he can just trade him for a mid round pick in next years draft because he's given up and at least he can start on next season. If it was a dynasty or keeper then I would understand but since it isn't draft picks for the following season shouldn't be traded. It could greatly effect the balance of the league and basically let some teams tank.
