fishing cable

Hello all. I have to fish new cable through 20' of a joist bay. There are dozens of screws through the ceiling from when drywall hangers covered the plaster and lath with sheetrock. Does this situation necessitate the use of mc cable instead of romex? I'm concerned a screw might tear open the romex while pulling it through. Thanks

Given your situation MC would be less likely to be damaged.
