THE SIMPLE philosophy for playing AFL Fantasy Classic is to buy low and sell high. Usually this is about the cash cows. Matt Roberts started at $245,000 and he's now valued at $600,000. It's time to go.

Actually, in the case of Roberts, a move a couple of weeks ago would've been better but with the current $355,000 increase, he's been a fantastic cash cow.

A lot of our rookies have reached their peak and, in some cases, they're going backwards. Giants pair Harvey Thomas and Aaron Cadman have done their jobs as money makers. They can be traded to the new crop of rookies coming through such as Collingwood's Joe Richards.

But thinking outside the square with this philosophy is something The Traders are considering on the latest episode of the AFL Fantasy Podcast.

Harry Sheezel has been incredible this season. He's averaging 115.3 for the year with a high of 159 against the Cats in round five and hit a peak price of $1.06m a fortnight ago. Scores of 89 and 71 has seen his value dip below the million-dollar mark.

The role off half-back appears to have changed. The second-year Roo is now running through the midfield and spending time up forward. This has not been great for Fantasy scoring.

Roy, Calvin and Warnie debate whether the selling high on Sheezel is a play heading into round 10.
