Bobby Sylvester
FantasyPros
Rivers is going to have plenty of startable games this season, but it doesn't make much sense to use him in a game script that should get out of hand in a hurry. It would be one thing if the opponent was a poor pass defense like the Jets or Dolphins, but Pittsburgh hasn't been bad at all through the air. 
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 Jimmy G really isn't getting much help from his pass catchers, outside of Kittle, so luckily the running game is working for the Niners. This week, he will likely have to pass more, facing a well-rested Rams team coming off two bad losses. This game has a lot of stakes, and it could be wise to avoid Jimmy G if you have another solid option, because Aaron Donald and company have something to prove.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Rivers was absolutely awful in Week 5 and he has a tough matchup against a tough Steelers D at home this week.The Rams are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks, but Garoppolo does not put up big passing stats in a run-oriented offense. He is a low-upside QB2 this week.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Rivers hasn't offered a ton in terms of fantasy upside this season, which isn't all that atypical from what we've seen over the last few years. He's a fine streaming option against the Steelers on Sunday night, but he tends to nestle right in that 14-18 point range.
