Preamp vs Distribution amp for outdoor FM antenna

Hi all,
I have an Antennacraft FM6 that I've been using indoors. Going to move it outside for better reception. I'll have roughly 90 feet of RG6 quad shield.
Should I buy a preamp, or a distribution amp? I will have no splitters or anything else causing loss, other than the 90 feet of cable.
FM Fool signal plot is as follows:

I'm aiming to get the weaker signals, mainly the greys. The Pittsburgh FM's (red area) come in clear enough most days inside.
I only have 92.5 and 106.3 as for local signals for possible overload.
Bottom line: Am I better off with a preamp, vs a distribution amp for my situation?
Looking at the Winegard LNA-200 Boost XT Digital HDTV Preamplifier , vs the HDA-100 dist amp.
Thanks in advance,
Jim
