I have a terrible feeling that we'll go on a streak the final 10 games that won't be enough to make the play-offs but will push us out of the top 3-4 draft picks.

The problem with that attitide is it's essentially the same one that causes teams to pack it in too soon, whether in a game or throughout the season. If you're on the fence and wondering whether or not you should be tanking or trying to win, you're sunk, and you'll probably keep losing even if you could be winning. There is no clear line as to when you should "tank hard" as opposed to trying to win, short of being mathematically eliminated.
