You're getting clamped by the system. Besides your ranking in the league, you also have a hidden matchmaking rating (MMR). It's basically an average that guesses where you should be. If you go on a winning streak and get a bunch of points per win, you get ahead of your average, so the system slows down your points per win let your MMR catch up, then you'll go back to earning the big points.

Just keep winning more than 50% of your games, your MMR will catch up and start moving you along quickly again.
