I think you have a lazy load plugin for performance, hiding the images out of the viewport and it doesn't work as expected. You can try by disabling it.

It's two years since this question was asked but did you solve the problem? I encountered a similar situation after changing Web servers/hosting. There were two main problems.

First, permissions are set at 0644 when uploaded through the Wordpress interface. If you have access to the server, recursively set all files under the Uploads folder to 0644.

Secondly, the meta info of the images can be somehow mis-set. There's a plugin called Media Sync that you can use to scan your uploads directory for misconfigured image file paths and correct them.

After examining those two possibilities and if they correct your issue, you can go to the editor and set the featured image(s) from already uploaded files in the media library. There's a plugin called Featured Image Plus that allows setting the featured image from the quick edit function of the posts list, which in my experience, saves time from the hassle of sevetal trips to the editor.
