The Rams D tends to play better at home and with WR Julio Jones not right, Ryan is probably more of a high-end QB2 this week.Rivers does not usually struggle when he heads east and he does have 1,068 yards, 10 touchdowns and 7 picks in his last 5 games. He's a solid QB2 against a struggling Panthers D.
