Overwatch MMR Reset

VERY IMPORTANT ANALYSIS AND EXPLANATION PLEASE READ:
Usually I wouldn't make one of these but there's been a huge problem with ranked play on Overwatch. A huge problems with the game is "boosted" players which is players that do not belong in their current rank. This is commonly because of two things. Players boosting other players or the in game performance system made by Blizzard themselves. There has been no change to remove these players since the start of Season 3 when the Performance system was heavily applied. The Professional scene seems to be doing fine since they're high skilled players but when a player such as Surefour, Taimou, or common streamers like Pokelawls or TimetheTatman struggle to play the game in which they grew more off of there's a huge problem. In ranked play typically when you see a player doing poorly you check their career profile, keep in mind everyone in this current lobby is GM(Grand Master), you see that this person was below diamond with more than 100+ Hours that season. I'd understand if it were the player getting better but if someone is unable to perform in high tier lobbies it's obvious and kills the game for the team with that player on their team. The only reason they reached high tiers is because of the Performance based system which awards players for playing off meta heroes and giving them more sr and losing less.
EXPLANATION OF PBS: Performance based System is the games best way to measure how much SR you get but not just on how you do in game but how you do in game vs everyone else who plays that hero. So more popular heroes will give you greater scaling and lower your SR gain if you did average. However playing a hero such as Sombra there's less to go against so you'd typically be getting more SR and losing less. Players have found this out and have been abusing it. In some cases it leads to the player looking like they're throwing.
OVERALL: A solution that many players have asked for is a MMR reset because high level players are confident enough to get back to where they are and it would get rid of all of the "boosted" players therefore making ranked play more enjoyable. Everyone will be put into the ranks they belong to and play at their own skill level until they further improve.
Either this needs to happen or many players will be reported and end up not playing the game anymore because of all the high level players reporting the boosted because that's currently our only solution to getting rid of them.
