This question is similar to Suppress “In:” biblatex and biblatex: How to remove the parentheses around the year in authoryear style?, but I don’t want to change the format of bibliography entries completely, but would rather like it to deal better with some cases.

The part “In: (2017).” looks very suboptimal. How could the formatting be improved for entries without a journal title?
