Using Rider without Visual Studio for .NET Framework v4.6.1 development

In my company, we are thinking about moving from Visual Studio Enterprise to Rider but one of our main solutions is still targeting .NET Framework v4.6.1.

We would like to only have Rider installed and no Visual Studio IDE (to avoid paying licenses for both). From what I've read here and here it seems that the MSBuild provided by Jetbrains only supports up to v4.5.

Is there some way to achieve this for .NET Framework v4.6.1 as of today?
