I use TQSL to upload QSOs directly from the WSJTX log file at the end of each session. No need for a separate program.
Yes, if upload to LOTW is your only goal. Many (most?) of us work other modes besides FT8, and may want to keep track of various awards or goals not supported by LOTW. Several logging programs integrate nicely with WSJT-X, or WSJT-X in combination with JTAlert.

JTAlert is freeware that many of us use; one of it's excellent features is that it can automagically log to several "general" loggers. One of them is DXKeeper, also freeware, by AA6YQ. I was lucky to discover it right after getting back on the air in 2003. It's part of Dave's very nice DXLab Suite. Among other things, it can automagically upload and download to/from LOTW, eQSL, and ClubLog, keep track of lots of awards, let you view all prior QSOs with someone you're working, including name, QTH, band, mode, etc.

I don't use all of the other programs in Dave's suite, but I find his DXView, Spot Collector, and WinWarbler especially useful. And the "Commander" rig control program can do some useful things, depending on what else you do besides WSJT-X modes.
