Which lens to upgrade from 70-300

Hi, I do have Nikon Af-S 70-300 VR and use it to shoot youth football and occasional outdoor portraits. I was thinking of a possible upgrade lens to solve for shallow DOF/bokeh and fast AF. Of course, I would love 70-200 2.8 VRII or FL but that is beyond my budget of around 1000USD.

The new AF-P seems good but is still F4.5-5.6 slow. So how about the f4 lenses? Could you suggest which of the other options would be best for my two criteria - ideally based on own experience or some reviews/testing that you can point to.
