Actually it is cheating.
In Rules of Fair play and Sportsmanship #4 reads
"No owner will make any roster moves (including waiver claims, trade proposals, etc.) whose sole purpose is to hamper the play of other owners."
It's a funny move in my opinion because it penalizes (in a creative way) someone for not staying up-to-date on their players, but according Yahoo it is cheating and you could lose your team if someone complained.
That's the dumbest rule I've ever heard. I guess you can't even draft a player, it might hamper the play of other owners . Oh, and I better make sure nobody else drafts players, because it might hamper my play. Why don't we just say we are all champs and not even play fantasy football! The sole purpose of playing fantasy football is to win, thus hampering the other owners of their play!

Read the rule:
4. No owner will make any roster moves (including waiver claims, trade proposals, etc.) whose sole purpose is to hamper the play of other owners.
The key here is SOLE PURPOSE. Of course all of your moves can hamper other players, however, it is only cheating if the sole purpose of the move is to hamper other players. This guy is cheating - period.
According to section8 article 318471274, what ever dude! He didn't have enough since to add a QB in time, I'd say good lookin out! It would suck if you did that too me, I'd probrably bitch about it too! Of course if you did that, I'd counter it by getting someone whose out of it to drop a QB so I could add it. It does kinda start a dirty chain of events!
The rule #4 is referring to adding and dropping players. If you keep them on your roster for that week, then your sole purpose was not to hinder the other team, regardless of if you even play one of those five QB's. If you added and then dropped them so that they could not be picked up, that would be cheating.
