We had similar problems in our 33 year old League. We changed from 26 teams with 23 active roster slots to 10 teams with 46 active rosters. Went from Freeze Rosters with 15 MLB and 10 Farm to 15 MLB and 6 Farm. A fantastic Freeze Roster alone no longer automatically beats any other tactics. We're an Auction league with a Salary Cap on Auction Day. We've remained a General Manager league rather than a daily manager of lineups. We have no bench. With 460 active players instead of 598 there are more players available during the season which has promoted more activity and fewer Ghost teams. We also split into 2 divisions, which we should have done when we had so many teams. We now have 3 winners out of a possible 10 each season- 2 division winners and a play-off winner. Lastly, we changed our scoring categories to have more counting ones and less rate ones which has encouraged teams to keep playing- adding starters, filling reserved players to have more slots pumping out stats each day.  Quality of owners beats quantity of owners. It's easier to find 10 active ones than 26.
