Starting with all 4 Blitzers means you will not have to worry (as much) about making too many re-rolls when blocking. MA7 also gives you a good Movement advantage over most races. 2 re-rolls isn't many to start off with, so you will need to use them sparingly and wisely.
o Option: Replace the Runner with a Lino and have 10k in the bank toward an Apo. Without several skills, a Runner is not reliable - AV 7 is soft and a new team can't easily protect it, and that's 31051 spp that should be going toward a Blitzer or your first Witch Elf.
Trading your 4th Blitzer & a Lineman for two AV 7 players is not as strong or safe as Variation 1 (above), but having the additional Runner & Assassin opens up more options and makes things a little more interesting (on both sides of the ball!). 2 re-rolls means you have to be a little cautious, as above.
Starting w only 2 Blitzers means you may need to use that 3rd RR for missed blocks (until you skill up some linemen), so this is a long-term build, saving money in the long-run and giving the team more "buffer" against early missed rolls. Your first purchases (after your Apo?) will be more Blitzers.
(* While you could afford 2 Runners with this Roster, not everyone likes Runners, not everyone likes them on a new team, and many would question starting with two.
Drop all Runners for Lino #9 and have 20k toward your Apo after the first game - there's a good chance at least one will get a perm before you can hire all the positionals you want.)
These are risky builds for two reasons. First, you have only 2 RR's, and without the Block skill the Witch Elf's Frenzy will eat up RR's extra-fast. Second, at AV 7, WE's are both fragile and a big target, and can easily Frenzy themselves out of position and end up vulnerable, and so need skilled support (and a skilled coach!) to properly protect them - and even 3 (unskilled) Blitzers may not qualify. Think twice before jumping on these builds just because it's mathematically possible.
