Troy David Chaplin (born 23 February 1986) is an Australian rules football player currently playing for the Richmond Football Club.

Chaplin played for the Maryborough Rovers Football Club and was drafted by Port Adelaide from North Ballarat Rebels at selection 15 in the 2003 AFL Draft.

The then 18-year-old left footer debuted in 2004 in Round 4 against Melbourne and played eight matches in 2005. He suffered a fractured left eye socket in Round One of 2006, but found consistency and collected 20 or more possessions four times that season.

Standing 196cm tall, Troy was also a champion basketballer and was a member of the Victorian Under 18 basketball team.

He was nominated for the 2006 NAB Rising Star award in Round 16 of that season.

A restricted free agent at the completion of the 2012 season, Chaplin was made a four year offer by Richmond, one which Port Adelaide chose not be match. Chaplin is now contracted to Richmond from 2013 to 2016.
