Here is my best explanation:

'the chap' is the definition.
('fellow' can be a synonym of 'chap')

'dropped round at the beginning of the week' is the wordplay.
'dropped' becomes 'fell' (I've seen this before).
'round' becomes 'o' (round can mean a round object**).
'at the beginning of' says to take the initial letters (I've seen 'at the beginning' mean this).
The first letter of 'week' is 'w'.
'fell'+'o'+'w'='FELLOW'
