Other methods to limit tearout are to score the blade path on both sides with knife cut. You can also take a very shallow pass, about 1/16”, then make the full cut.
No matter how light the load, a bottom attached panel for drawer bottom is not workable long term. If you can’t make the space saving dado cut, then at least glue and nail a small strip (1/4×1/4 minimum) around the inside perimeter of the drawer to rest the bottom upon.
