In this study, we introduce multidelay fractional differential equations with variable coefficients in a unique formula. A novel graph-operational matrix method based on the fractional Caputo, Riemann-Liouville, Caputo-Fabrizio, and Jumarie derivative types is developed to efficiently solve them. We also make use of the collocation points and matrix relations of the matching polynomial of the complete graph in the method. We determine which of the fractional derivative types is more appropriate for the method. The solutions of model problems are improved via a new residual error analysis technique. We design a general computer program module. Thus, we can explicitly monitor the usefulness of the method. All results are scrutinized in tables and figures. Finally, an illustrative algorithm is presented.
