Paul Chapman: Deck of Dream Team 2011

Chappy is a tough, cool, awesome Dream Teamer, and to truly appreciate him, he needs to be in your team. And let me tell you, that’s not such a bad thing. I dont think a team can ever look complete without Chappy making you happy.

Why should I pick him? Chappy is a tough, cool, awesome Dream Teamer, and to truly appreciate him, he needs to be in your team. And let me tell you, that’s not such a bad thing….. last year Chappy had three bad scores by his standard, they were 91, 88 and 99. Yes people, I’m hearing you, they are not even bad scores, but when you are Paul Chapman, you get really pissed at anything under 100….. and you don’t want to see him angry. Chappy is one of the most consistent premium DTers going around, and the fact you can pick him as a forward, with the flexibility of a midfield switch, he is hard to resist.

Why shouldn’t I pick him? Last year was the first time since 2006 that Chappy reached 20 games. The word from last years pre season was that he had changed his program, and he was past the chronic hamstring issues that had grounded one of DTs finest too frequently over the last few years. Not all coaches were convinced, however last years performance may give more faith? Those hammy’s are one year older however, so whether people to forget his history are yet to be seen. As a captain option, he is very safe, however never goes completely stupid, with a DT ceiling of about 140 these days.

Deck of DT Rating. Ace- I love Chappy and didn’t have the balls to start with him last year so he cost me a double trade, just so I didn’t have to sit through endless weeks of regret. Unless there is some major injury scare, I wont make that mistake again. If during the pre season he looks healthy and continues to play a roaming role under his new coach, I’ll be locking, loading and enjoying.
