How do you complement 24-70 F4?

I got this with Z6 kit, thinking to replace it later. Well, I have a hard time to let it go. Every time I review my photos, I hear WOW from myself.

But I am also a soccer dad, who needs an economic telephoto lens. Thinking about the following options:

1. Buy FTZ + my DX18-200. Cheapest, but not sure if I can be satisfied by the image with that lens anymore. And it is DX, kind of wasting too many pixels.

2. Buy FTZ + buy FX AFP 70-300. Used probably cost about $600-700 together. Seems to be a good balance in terms of price and image quality.

3. Buy Z 24-200. $800 when sale. Shorter than option 2. But it can be much lighter if I just bring one lens, although aperture is not as wide.

4. Buy Z 100-400. Cost too high for me at this point.

5. Buy Z 24-120 F4. Good aperture, but 120mm is probably not long enough even cropped.

I am leaning toward option 3 for now. I can crop a little if 200mm is not enough. And in lower light, I can use either 40mmF2 or 24-70F4.

I am interesting to hear your thoughts and curious about how you complete this wonderful lens on the telephoto side.
