Thoughts on Waiver pickups if out of Playoffs

Can I get your thoughts on if our league should allow owners that are not in the playoffs to be able to make waiver wire pick ups once the playoff start?

Example: last place team with first pick in the waiver order picked up Jaylen Samuels just to stash on his bench. Why is this owner still trying to influence the outcome of the league? Should the league not allow non-playoff owners from making waiver claims?

You can’t discriminate against half or more than half the league because they didn’t make playoffs. They have the same right as the teams who made playoffs to try and better their rosters. That would create a competitive imbalance.
