MLS Fantasy Advice: Erick 'Cubo' Torres and rolling Chivas USA put on a fireworks show of their own

Chivas USA took advantage of the double-game-week in Round 17 securing six of the 11 spots on this week's Dream Team. Dating back to last week, Chivas have now matched their 2013 total in shutouts (3) within the last eight days after back-to-back-to-back 1-0 victories against Real Salt Lake, San Jose and Montreal.

Erick 'Cubo' Torres has netted two must-see golazos (HERE and HERE) in the past week and now has four goals in his last four games. Yes, he's on fire.

This week didn't go exactly according to plan for several fantasy owners, but popular captain selections in Torres, Jermain Defoe, Harrison Shipp and Bradley Wright-Phillips gave managers something to cheer about.

Here's the recap for Round 17 along with the top transfers in and out so far this week:
